The Hula Chair

posted by on June 6 at 10:07 AM

Full disclosure: The woman in this video happens to be my best friend, Linda Dahlstrom.

But I’m pretty sure that the greatness of the video—a testing of the Hula Chair, which retails for $129.95 (and builds muscle, blasts fat away, and even relieves hemorrhoids, according to the manufacturers)—goes beyond my bias.

(If you want more, this is part of a series Dahlstrom edits where she and other MSNBC writers test outlandish products, like naked yoga. No. There is no video of her doing naked yoga.)

Dang, that's my favorite kind, actually.

And, for only $40 more, you get a year's worth of post-rupture email schadenfreude. Act now.

Ellen had this featured on her show. Hilarity ensued.

@5 - don't try to snowboard naked for that wii fit board game.

Rug burn.

Not fun.

The Victorians had what they called an "exercise chair", but unmotorized, of course. It had a big spring under the seat, and you had to bounce up and down yourself. My mom just saw it on an "Antiques Roadshow" episode.
Both of these items look as if they'd make the user sick.

Okay--the Ellen segment was the funniest thing I've seen in quite some time.

She missed her calling--she's a natural heir to Lucille Ball in terms of sheer physical comedy.

Or you could just get Parkinson's.

I would regret that purchase upon going to work with a hangover.

The funniest example of the hula chair was on G4 about a month ago, when Kevin and Olivia tried it out.

I showed this to my fiance, whose immediate comment was "I bet it would be fun to have sex in that chair."
